Baseball bills itself as the National Pastime and indeed it is quite popular.
 However, it was not particularly popular among those who purchased silver spoons because we find very few souvenir spoons related to the sport.

I only have one recently acquired spoon by Tiffany and Co. which is devoted to baseball.

In this picture the spoon appears to have a nice 3 dimensionality to it, but that is an optical illusion.

The back of the spoon indicates that it was made by Tiffany & Co. in 1995.

I am assuming that it is a re-strike of a spoon issued at an earlier date, but I have never seen such a spoon
(which only means I haven't seen it - -it may exist)

Note: I have seen a few other older spoons about baseball, but they are not common.

If on the chance that there is anyone reading this who does not know about baseball - -a simple writeup from Wikipedia is provided:

Baseball is a bat-and-ball sport played between two teams of nine players each. The goal is to score runs by hitting a thrown ball with a bat and touching a series of four bases arranged at the corners of a ninety-foot square, or diamond. Players on one team (the batting team) take turns hitting against the pitcher of the other team (the fielding team), which tries to stop them from scoring runs by getting hitters out in any of several ways. A player on the batting team can stop at any of the bases and later advance via a teammate's hit or other means. The teams switch between batting and fielding whenever the fielding team records three outs. One turn at bat for each team constitutes an inning; nine innings make up a professional game. The team with the most runs at the end of the game wins.

Evolving from older bat-and-ball games, an early form of baseball was being played in England by the mid-eighteenth century. This game and the related rounders were brought by British and Irish immigrants to North America, where the modern version of baseball developed. By the late nineteenth century, baseball was widely recognized as the national sport of the United States. Baseball on the professional, amateur, and youth levels is now popular in North America, parts of Central and South America and the Caribbean, and parts of East Asia. The game is sometimes referred to as hardball, in contrast to the derivative game of softball.
